What would you use a moisture meter for?

Posted by Sarah Brown on

A moisture meter is a device that is used to measure the moisture content of a material, such as timber, concrete, or drywall/gyprock. Moisture meters are commonly used in a variety of industries, including construction, woodworking, and home inspection, to determine the moisture content of building materials. 

There are several types of moisture meters, including pin-type meters, which measure moisture content by inserting small pins into the material being tested, and non-invasive meters, which use sensors to measure moisture content without making contact with the material. 

Moisture meters are used for a variety of purposes, including: 

  1. Assessing the moisture content of timber or other building materials to determine if they are dry enough for use or if they need to be further dried or treated. 

  2. Identifying moisture issues in buildings, such as leaks or high humidity levels, that can lead to mould or other damage. 

  3. Monitoring the moisture content of materials during the drying process, such as after a flood or water leak, to ensure that the materials are dry and safe to use. 

  4. Detecting moisture in materials that may not be visible, such as behind walls or under flooring. 

Using a moisture meter can help you to accurately assess the moisture content of materials, which can help you to identify potential issues and take appropriate action to prevent damage or deterioration.
